UPDATE

The audio above from firefighterdispatch is from the fire this (Wednesday) morning at the Fisher Body plant in Detroit that injured Firefighter Nicholas Benskey of Ladder 7. Benskey jumped from the bucket of the tower ladder as a portion of the building collapsed.

At 5:39 you hear someone radio to the bucket to back up and then the messages get more urgent. This is followed by the firefighter on the radio saying “Don’t jump!” The next transmission is for EMS to come to the scene.

Detroit Deputy Fire Commissioner Craig Dougherty told reporters this morning, “Part of the building started to collapse. It appears that one of the firefighters then jumped out of the bucket.” Indications are the Firefighter Benskey dropped about 30 feet. A second firefighter in the bucket of the tower ladder was not injured.

The Detroit News:

A firefighter was injured Wednesday morning after he jumped about 40 feet from a fire ladder truck bucket when a building partially collapsed.

Two firefighters were in the bucket near a southeast corner of the building when it started to collapse. One of the firefighters, in his 30s, jumped out of the bucket to safety and fell about 40 feet.

“It appeared, at the time, a portion of the building was coming directly at the ladder,” said Second Deputy Fire Commissioner Craig Dougherty with the Detroit Fire Department.

Robert Allen, Detroit Free Press:

“He initially was knocked unconscious,” said second deputy Detroit fire commissioner Craig Dougherty. “After a bit, he came to and he knew who he was, and he knew where he was.”

The firefighter, who has about 10 years of experience, was in the bucket with another firefighter, spraying flames into the second floor on the southeast side of the plant, Dougherty said. The second firefighter remained in the bucket and was uninjured, he said.

“He’s a great firefighter, a young guy, probably got about 10 years on the job now,” Second Fire Commissioner Craig Dougherty said.

Fire Chief Stanley Davis said a counselor will be on hand for the rest of the day to talk things over with the crew.

“Just for the guys to talk, to be able to express any concerns or anything like that. It’s like family members. Anytime one of your family members is hurt, everybody hurts,” he said.

MI Detroit stolen saws 1

Image from Detroit Firehouse Facebook page.

WWJ-TV:

Detroit firefighters say two saws they use while responding to emergencies have been stolen from a truck while crews battled a blaze.

The theft took place early Sunday as firefighters were working on Dundee Street near Grand River Avenue. Jeremy Mullins, a 14-year veteran firefighter, told the Detroit Free Press there had been 10 fires within three days in a three-block area where crews were working.

“We parked the rig and fought the fire. When we came back and opened the compartment, they were gone,” he said. “It was easy pickings.”

Mullins said the thieves made off with a chainsaw and a large K-14 saw. Both are important tools for firefighters, he said, and cost about $2,000 each.

Katrease Stafford, Detroit Free Press:

Mullins said after the first theft, the firefighters installed a bracket and a chain in Ladder 22 and locked both saws up.

But Ladder 22’s rig is in the repair shop, so the firefighters are using a temporary pickup truck with a pump on the back. Mullins said firefighters were unable to secure the saws, leaving the equipment vulnerable.

Mullins was able to replace the chainsaw by using money the firefighters had saved up to repair the firehouse’s kitchen, which is in disrepair. Mullins, who has been a firefighter for nearly 14 years, said the city is unable to cover the cost.

The firefighters have set up a PayPal account to cover the cost of the K-14 saw.

Watch original raw video of rescue

Thanks to reader and friend Mike Doyle STATter911.com was able to post the dramatic video of the disabled man being rescued from a Fresno, California house fire on Saturday just hours after it happened. By Sunday and early Monday that video had gone viral and was also seen on network newscasts. But the early news stories missed an important element of the story, the heroes.

Who were the men who went into the home to make the rescue? They didn’t leave their names and at least one of them didn’t even tell his family what he had done. The  news stories from late yesterday (Monday) now provide those answers.

Also, we now have helmet-cam video from Saturday’s fire as Fresno firefighters make their attack (immediately below).

KFSN-TV:

“It’s just an instinct, you know? It’s just an instinct, you see someone and you just help out people, you know?” said hero Tom Artiaga.

Artiaga was driving on his way to work by this harrowing scene when he pulled over because his instinct tells him to help people, even if that means facing danger.

“I was scared, you know? I’m sure anybody would be scared, but it’s a life, hey try to help him,” said hero Tom Artiaga.

He was the last of several people who went into the flames to save 73-year-old Robert Wells.

Artiaga’s son says his father doesn’t consider himself a hero.

“He didn’t say a word about it to me or my mom,” said Thomas Artiaga, the hero’s son.

Andrea Castillo, The Fresno Bee:

Anita Meza said her husband and his co-worker, Moses Gonzales, who are installation employees for the Florida-based Masco Contractors Services, were working at an apartment in the complex behind Wells’ home. Masco declined to let Art Meza and Gonzales be interviewed on Monday.

Anita Meza said her husband ran inside the burning home, grabbed Wells — who was standing in the dining room looking confused — and brought him out to the back patio through a sliding glass door. Art Meza left Wells standing there, hunched over and grabbing his knees, while he checked whether anyone else was inside.

Wells said his granddaughter pulled off his oxygen tubes. Then Artiaga picked Wells up and carried him away from the growing fire. All the while, Gonzales tried to suppress the flames with a garden hose.
